Upon graduating from college with a bachelor’s degree in both Business and Government, I worked as a member of the Development office and as a dorm parent at The Fessenden School, a K-9 all-boys day and boarding school outside of Boston. It was the experience of working as part of the residential life staff that helped to define my career path and led me to pursue graduate studies in Counseling and Student Affairs Administration. After positions working in the student life offices at Cheshire Academy (CT), The Madeira School (VA) and Lawrence Academy (MA), I moved to Florida in the fall of 2006 to begin my work as the Dean of Students at Tampa Preparatory School.

The ultimate goal for me professionally is to foster a dynamic and inclusive campus community that supports students’ personal, social and intellectual growth during the high school years. My role on campus can be described as being a cheerleader, listener, organizer, counselor, student advocate and disciplinarian. Adults play a huge part in the personal experiences students have at school. My hope for students is that they exhibit curiosity, honesty, kindness, respect, and responsibility in all aspects of their lives at Tampa Prep.
